Film 7

Drawing a Building in Two- Point Perspective by Pam Locker

The film demonstrates how you can use a two point measured perspective or ‘Vertical Plane Perspective’, to draw up a complete and detailed line drawn image from scaled plans and elevations that can then be photocopied and rendered. In this film you can practice drawing an object that could be a small building, a pavilion or an exhibition stand. Step by step downloadable handouts will take you through the process in a measured, methodical way that will help to you to learn how to ‘see’ perspective.
